A helpful process when activating your willpower:
Sit down with your journal and answer the below questions. Be real and honest. Dig deep. Can you see a pattern?
- Why am I doing this?
- Why am I telling myself the stories that just aren’t true?
- Why am I triggered by the thought of being amazing?
- What will be taken away from me if that’s the truth and why do I have so much resistance towards it?
- Why am I afraid to shine? Why am I afraid to be so darn wonderful?
- Why am I afraid to be good at what I do?
- Why am I afraid to feel beautiful?
- Why am I afraid to walk around with my, my shoulders back and my chest forward to face the world with a smile and a positive outlook?
- Why am I afraid of that?
- Why is it more comfortable for me to hang on to what I have, even though it is shitty and crappy?
- Why is this familiar?
We don’t have to change, it’s a choice. A privilege. And when we don’t want to, it’s easy to say: it didn’t work for me. I can’t do it. Or “Hilde, you’re so strong, you’re stronger than me”.
Nobody is. You are. You are the one. You’re the one that you’ve been waiting for. You’re the solution to everything in your life. We need to stop not doing what’s not serving us. We’re not doing anyone any, you know, service. By doing that, you’re worthy. You’re worthy of everything that life has to offer. So that’s number one, look at the resistance that comes up. Because if somebody tells you, everything will be amazing, that should feel inspiring. It should be celebrated. You should be jumping up and down with a message like that.
Forgiveness releases power:
We cannot walk through life carrying unforgiveness with us as a reason to stay sick and tired and sick and tired of being sick and tired. Forgiveness is an act of self-love. Forgiveness is not saying that what happened was okay. Forgiving is saying, “I’m not going to spend more time going through this and reliving this because it’s energy that is done with. I’m freeing myself and I’m heading the other direction where there is sunshine, where there is love, where there is prosperity, positivity, and good outlooks.
That’s where I’m heading. I can’t take this with me.
When you can open up your heart with forgiveness, that’s where your heart will create from. Everything that you do will come from your heart. That’s when intuition comes in. That’s where compassion comes in. Step out and step up. Step into who you are, where you are. Believe in yourself and believe in your health. Every cell in your body is listening and they are acting accordingly.
Health and happiness are a process, and here is why:
When all I wanted was to be able to hike, when all I wanted was a sunny day that felt good, I already knew what to do. I knew it was all up to me. Not that I knew every step of the way. Heck no, I am still walking my journey. Learning every day. And that is the key. To realize we don’t know and walk towards what we DO. The power of thoughts, emotions, actions, energy, and all that.
Ok, so imagine where you want to be. Out of pain? Feeling fab? Helping others? No matter what it is, imagine it. I mean imagine it. Now, what emotions would fit into the picture? Joy, happiness, a sense of accomplishment, gratitude? I bet the anger, fear, and sorrow would NOT. And that is how we create and tap into our power. All having the same ability to do so. You see, fear-based thinking comes from resistance. So, as long as we think we cannot, we cannot.
As soon as we shift our mindset to:
- I am worthy
- I am able
- I ready
- I am doing this
- I can feel it
- I am strong
- I got this
It is taking us towards: I DID IT!
Procrastination, self-sabotage, fear of change, lack of self-love, all keeping us from doing what we KNOW we need to do to reach our goals. Keeping us from feeling we have the willpower. Feeling less than activated. Weak and powerless. Like a victim.
I bet you know what you need to change to feel better. At least some of it. Where you could start. You know one or two things that are keeping you from looking and feeling like a million. I knew a few myself. Like quitting smoking and dropping the diet coke addiction. Oh, and the cheese doodles thing. I knew.
Every single day did I know.
Every hangover also told me what NOT to keep doing. Every day with ulcers, with inflammation and pain. I knew something was off. Every late night I stayed out, I knew. How? My body and soul told me. Like it is telling me smiles and loves right now, it was showing me to back off and listen.
Still, I didn’t know HOW to do it! I was lost in my mindset.
I kept telling myself all these stories. About later, about why and why not I couldn`t and didn´t have to. Boy did I speak to myself. Long talks. On repeat.
It is all Bullshit. No truth to it. Only fear and addiction. There is no reason why you see. It is always a good time to honor your health and life. It is always a good time to step up and find out what to do. The BEST time is BEFORE you get familiar with the symptoms of ill health.
The DO part is key.
THE key. I know it might sound easy when it’s not, but that is NOT what I am about. I have been there. Soo there.
My message is this:
Stop playing small, allowing yourself not to do your best. HEALTH and happiness is a process. LIFE is a process.
#1: Everything is affected by our mindset: What are your thoughts about? Are you planning abundance or more fear and sickness?
#2: Emotional processing: Are you holding on to anger and fear? Your emotional state is what you are sending out to the Universe. It`s your “Channel”. Healing emotional wounds will elevate your capacity for healing. I see so many that are suffering from PTSD without even knowing it. Me, included. Processing old traumas are essential. They stick to your organs and glands.
#3: Self-love: This is HUGE. Any thyroid issue, adrenal issue, you KNOW this is one to look at. Most of us were not conditioned for self-love, but for being pleasers. Time to live from LOVE.
#4: Diet: This is where I always start, with any client. I mean, lets, first of all, do no harm. Let’s step away from the toxins, the burden, the mucus-forming processed food-like substances, and simply eat whole fresh food. For some, this changes everything almost instantaneously, and for others, it shows them how toxic they really are. For me, omg. Well, I was, like so many other autoimmune diagnosed, so filled with parasites, viruses, fungi, etc I almost blew up. Or so it felt. This is why detoxification is a must, and guidance and understanding is important. I have some articles on my website on this topic, with pictures that might blow your mind.
#5: Lifestyle: Yes, you got it, it is ALL connected. Stress is huge here. Stress kills. It is at the core of any imbalance.
#6: Passion: This is needed. Now, not in form of something extravagantly extraordinarily anything, but you do need the will to live, to do, to create. It is crucial. No drive, no action.
Your life and situation are NOT a punishment.
It’s an opportunity.
It’s a potential.
If I could do it, YOU can do it.
Start by deciding, make a choice. You see, THAT is where the journey begins to unfold. THAT is when you activate your willpower. It feels like strength and determination. Once you decide to take charge, to be the boss of your life, to cut the crap, and be real.
